I noticed on the book scanner wikipedia page there was a picture of a flipped book scanner with the book facing down. I imagine this would be an easier set up since you don't need tall contraptions to hold up the cameras and whatnot, yet all the other book scanners I've seen have the book facing upward.
What are your thoughts on this setup? You guys think this would be better?
(Apologies if there's a thread on this already, I couldn't find one though.)
